Grand Opening Outback Steakhouse Livonia Mi Plus Gift Card Giveaway

Outback-Steakhouse-

 

Outback Steakhouse opened  its newest restaurant location in Livonia, Mi this  Wednesday, November 12, 2014.  In celebration and to give back to the community, they will  be hosting  a charity day on Monday, November 17th, 2014. On this day a portion of the restaurant’s sales will benefit the American Cancer Society, Livonia Chapter. This would be a great day to check out the restaurant and support a great charity!

For more than 100 years, the American Cancer Society (ACS) has worked relentlessly to save lives and create a world with less cancer and more birthdays. Together with millions of our supporters worldwide, the organization helps people stay well, get well, find cures and fight back against cancer.

The new restaurant will serve lunch daily and will be the first in the Livonia area to feature a new “Modern Australia” design both inside and out. The “Modern Australia” design with décor that mirrors the indigenous flora and fauna, adventure, geography and leisure of modern day Australia. Guests will also enjoy a spacious, energetic bar area that includes a community table – a great place to meet up with friends and enjoy specialty beer, wine and hand-crafted cocktails. The new bar will also feature customized seating and furnishings and is connected directly to the outdoor dining patio.

Outback is best known for grilled steaks, chicken and seafood but  also offers a wide variety of crisp salads and freshly made soups and sides. I have been following a Whole30 diet recently and was very happy the Outback could easily work within my dietary restrictions. I  selected an Outback Special steak (grilled with no butter) , sweet potato no butter, and steamed veggies with no butter. It was so nice to have a night out and not worry about breaking my Whole30.

You can also get on the waitlist right on www.outback.com or use call-ahead seating  by calling the restaurant at 734-421-0220. This is so helpful especially dining with kids.
